Each site has a unique, diverse, highly acute patient population consisting of local and referral patients.

The Department of Emergency Medicine has a 4 year, highly successful, academically oriented residency program with 40 residents, multiple fellowships including one of only six NIH funded K12 clinical research fellowships and several nationally acclaimed research programs housed within its Center for Resuscitation Science and the Center for Emergency Care Policy Research. There are over 90 faculty across the three sites and there are close academic affiliations and programmatic alliances with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Veterans Medical Center. Faculty positions will be structured across multiple sites according to skills, interest and clinical availability.

Faculty candidates who have strong academic and leadership potential combined with a strong desire to be part of an outstanding, highly motivated and highly productive group of colleagues are urged to apply.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
